Your Study Programme

Your Study Programme

At Brock you will collaborate with your Personal Tutor to create a Study Programme that is right for you and your learning objectives.

This initiative will enable you to enjoy a joined-up, holistic learning experience that incorporates and supports both your subjects and extra-curricular interests.

Below you will find a breakdown of key areas that make up your Study Programme.


Naturally, your lessons form the core of your Study Programme. You should aim to attend every single one to help ensure success.

A Level lessons are 65 minutes long. You will have five lessons per-subject per-week, one of which is directed study time.

Vocational lessons are also 65 minutes long. Depending on your course, you will have between 14 and 18 lessons per-week, one of which is directed study time.
